He definitely did enough to deserve charges. However, he did also call in the tip about her being at the motel, and for that I'm thankful.
Not excusing anything. He should have called immediately instead of waiting weeks, helping hide the death, etc. But he eventually did the right thing (IMO).

Actually, he didn't call in the tip. :confused:

Police arrested Balboa at the motel shortly after. The room was registered to a man named Dylan Walker, who was later grilled by police. The 27-year-old told police Balboa called him on Monday to say "she needed help because she was involved in an altercation."

Walker noted that he was the caller who reported the tip to CrimeStoppers.

Well damn. I misread this as him being that man. But no, it was another man entirely. There goes his .01% right thing credit. Back to 0.

He said he and Balboa drove to a storage unit located at 16650 Highway 3 in Webster, Texas, according to court documents. On June 1, court documents said Balboa called another man to drive her and the plastic tote to Jasper, Texas. That man called in a Crime Stoppers tip and Samuel’s body was found, authorities said.

Samuel Olson death: Weapon that killed 5-year-old may have been found, prosecutor says​

As the second person charged in the death of 5-year-old Samuel Olson posted $100,000 bond on Thursday, the chief prosecutor in the case revealed that a weapon that may have been used to kill the boy has been located.

On top of being ordered to house arrest, Rivera was banned from the use of firearms, as well as being in contact or around children and family members of Balboa or Olson.


Beall also revealed that they believe they found the weapon that may have led to the boy's death. No specifics were given as to where the weapon was found. Additional testing is being performed on it to confirm whether it was used to killed Samuel.

Shortly after Rivera made bond, Tonya Olson, the boy's grandmother issued the following statement Thursday afternoon:

"We are vey disappointed! That the bond was so low. And our hearts are broken that he gets to walk around free and Sammy can't!"

'I have no words for her' | Samuel Olson's mother reacts to news of capital murder charge in son's death​

The mother of Samuel Olson spoke for the first time since someone was been charged with murder in the 5-year-old’s death.

His father's girlfriend, Theresa Balboa, is now charged with capital murder. Olson's mother says although she's glad about the charges she wants more justice.

"Honestly, I was waiting so long to get my son back. This is not how I wanted to celebrate him coming back," Sarah Olson said.


Balboa was already in custody charged with tampering with a corpse.

“I have no words for her," Sarah Olson said.

“I'm thankful that someone's finally being held accountable for my son and I’m hoping more justice gets served,” Sarah Olson said.

She says the boy's father, Dalton Olson, should also be charged. He's not facing any charges, and the Harris County District Attorney's Office says it will not comment on this case at this time.

Two others, Benjamin Rivera and Dylan Walker are charged with tampering with evidence.

“Keep fighting for your babies. Don't stop fighting for your babies. Do whatever it takes, just make sure they're safe," Sarah Olson said.

High-profile attorney assigned to capital murder case against Theresa Balboa​

High-profile attorney Anthony Osso was assigned to the capital murder case against Theresa Balboa.

Osso said the first step was putting together a defense team to help in the case. He said they’ll likely hire an independent pathologist to review the autopsy.

“It’s a slow process and we ask people to keep an open mind. It’s an unfortunate situation and we don’t have all the evidence in the case yet. It’s gonna take us a while to figure this out,” Osso said.
